You know summer 2012 is here when Coney Island opens for business. The boardwalk at Coney Island, which is otherwise known as America’s playground officially, opens for the summer season on May 26, 2012.
Though Coney Island is located in the southern tip of Brooklyn, the Coney Island amusement area is the amusement area for the entire New York City area. Coney Island, Brooklyn, is a great get away with your car rental or take a group of kids, friends, co-workers and neighbors, rent a minivan or 15 passenger van and head to the attractions, rides and of course the wonderful beach.

There is plenty of parking from on street parking, which is free since the New York City Council passed a resolution which provides for free parking meters on Sunday’s. There are also parking lots available, so whether you live in the northern end of New York City in the Bronx or Queens and Manhattan, there is no other place in New York City like Coney Island.
This year there are two new rides which are debuting this weekend. There is an all new roller coaster, a Skycoaster which launches riders 100 feet in the air as well as the all new Coney Island Raceway which will be a go-kart race course for kids of all ages. Saturday morning at 11am is the official start time of the new attractions.
So head out, rent a car from one of our many offices in the City, from the exciting new Fiat 500 to the 2012 Toyota Camry and the reliable Ford Econoline 15 passenger van and Chrysler Town & Country minivan and experience for yourself the feel of the breeze coming off the Atlantic Ocean, the sand between your toes and the thrills of Coney Island as Brooklyn and the entire City of New York return to their heyday of summer fun.
